cashier (Former Employee), kuilsriverApril 28, 2015
Every day is different as you work with different people each and every day nothing is expected and predictable so that is what makes things interesting and exciting because weather you will have a bad day or a good one that all depends on you.

A good place to start a career
Admin Manager (Former Employee), GPApril 23, 2015
Pros: so many people become part of your life
Cons: Long hours
Because of the nature of the business we had many and different customers a day will never be the same, I have leaned to work with different cultures of people and how to manage them and to handle and respect different customers and their cultures the hardest part of the job is the long hours, and the most enjoyable part is every person you meet and the relationship you build with both customers and staff

merchandiser (Former Employee), Harrismith, FSMarch 6, 2015
Pros: yes, free lunches sumtimes
Cons: twilight and night shift
days depend mainly on number of customers per day. i learned more about customers especially the hard one. with managers is not easy to tell because each an every one of them are very different. it's all good as long each an everyone of knows that we are also in business like the manager because without them the business is incomplete. in the month end we must make sure that the shelf is fully packed. we enjoy ourselves to hear that the business is doing well and we top our regional shops

GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE LACK ON MOTIVATION
trainee manager (Former Employee), Burgersfort, LPMarch 3, 2015
Pros: petty cah
Cons: abnormal hours
THE ENVIROMENT ITS TOO NOISY AND SCARY.
ON MANAGEMENT IVE LEARNED HOW TO LEAD CO-WORKERS AND HOW TO SOLVE PROBEMS AS A SINIOR AND HOW TO HANDLE CHALLENGES.
CRAETE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH CO-WORKERS IN ORDER TO PERFOM THE EXPECTED STANDARD.
THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS TO STAY IN FEAR ON WHEN AM I GOING TO GET FIRED BECAUSE EVERYONE IS ON THE GOING LIST IF YOU NOT ON THE LIKABLE LIST.
HONESTLY I LIKED THE TRAINING PART WHICH TOOK ME AWAY FROM THE STORE ENVIROMENT AS ITS NOT A COMFORTABLE ZONE.

As a male baker who was so dedicated to my job and had qualified for the job i was doing i was more productive,
baker (Former Employee), Kempton Park, GPFebruary 24, 2015
Cons: 13hrs
when customers are happy with the production, I've lent that communication, dedication and commitment are the best tools an employee can ever use from management down to co-workers, on holidays that when the demand is extremely very high so with shortage of stuff you end up working double shift, some customers become regular so they end up partnering with us by placing orders, recommending us to birthday cakes baking for the on any kind of special events.

Client facing enviroment
Adnim Manager (Former Employee), Vryheid, ZNFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: free lunch to customers on certain promotions
Cons: being behind from the target
Everyday was always enjoyable as I was meeting different people from different backgrounds with different needs and wants, so it helped me to understand different people and also improve my client/customer service. The hardest part was when sales are not our side so by then we have to work extra hours extra days to catch up with the budget.

Working for shopright was just a mind blowing experience for me because it was my first time at a working place as i was doing part time worker because i was studying in TUT.There were lot of challenges but then most of all i learned that its important to interact with different people.Most importantly you must understand that there is diversity in a work place.I also learned that communication among co-workers is very important towards production of the company.The most important thing in a work place is time,it needs to be used efficiently.

General Assistant (Former Employee), Pretoria, GPJanuary 17, 2015
A typical day at shoprite was very challenging and fun environment,the company gives training to every staff to ensure they are updated and doing their best at work.
I learned a lot about how handle customers and about the rights and regulations of a customer.
The management was very friendly,helpful and also driven for success,they always want you to strive for number 1.
Co-workers are motivational.The hardest part about this job was working hours and i enjoyed working with customers as providing them with great service was the main aim.
